Abstract

An optical technique is described which is capable of compensating the effects of imperfect spatial coherent illumination on the performance of a modified Mach-Zehnder spectrum analyzer. Methods for experimentally determining the complex mutual coherence function of the illumination using the analyzer are also described. The addition to the system of a calibrated phase shifter controlled by a minicomputer is proposed, which permits the spectral amplitude and phase to be determined automatically in real time.
